Wash Post: Sessions Considering Special Counsel Into Clinton

Image: Wash Post: Sessions Considering Special Counsel Into ClintonAttorney General Jeff Sessions is looking into appointing a second special counsel to investigate concerns raised by Republicans, The Washington Post reported Monday.
The Post cited a letter it said it obtained from Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, who twice has requested Sessions appoint a special counsel. Among issues Goodlatte wants investigate are how the FBI handled the probe into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state, several issues involving the Clinton Foundation, and multiple matters involving a Russia's nuclear energy agency's purchase of the Canadian mining firm Uranium One.

Goodlatte also wants a special counsel to look into former FBI Director James Comey's actions directing leaks of conversations he had with President Donald Trump.
According to the Post's reporting, Boyd responded to Goodlatte that Sessions has "directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters," adding the prosecutors would "report directly to the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a special counsel."
Special counsel Robert Mueller is currently probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which, at least publicly, has focused on hacks into Democratic National Committee emails and meetings between Trump campaign officials and Russians.

So, Donald Trump briefly spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Da Nang, Vietnam. He spoke about it with the White House Press Corps onboard Air Force One on the way to Hanoi. Of course, questions about Russian meddling:
REPORTER: Did Russia’s attempts to meddle in U.S. elections come up in the conversation?
TRUMP: He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. But I just asked him again, and he said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they’re saying he did. And he said —
REPORTER: Do you believe him?
TRUMP: Well, look, I can’t stand there and argue with him. I’d rather have him get out of Syria, to be honest with you. I’d rather have him — you know, work with him on the Ukraine than standing and arguing about whether or not — because that whole thing was set up by the Democrats.
I mean, they ought to look at Podesta. They ought to look at all of the things that they’ve done with the phony dossier. Those are the big events. Those are the big events.

Moore Fires Back: McConnell Is the One Who Should Step AsideAlabama Senate candidate Roy Moore fired back at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Monday for saying he should get out of the race after accusations of sexual misconduct.

"I think he should step aside," McConnell said at a press conference, adding that he believes the accusations are credible.

As Christine reported, many on the right have called for him to step down if the accusations are true, including President Trump, but McConnell is the first to say he “believes the women” in the Washington Post report.

He also said he’s trying to determine if there’s a way to replace him at this point.

“We’re looking at whether or not there is someone who can mount a write-in campaign successfully,” he said, reports the Louisville Courier Journal.

Bannon on Refusing Lunch with Palestinian President: ‘I Didn’t Want to Breathe the Same Air as a Terrorist’

Bravo! And the left tries to paint Bannon as a Nazi. You cannot make this stuff up.

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon discussed his address to the Zionist Organization of America on Monday’s Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow. 

Bannon said Breitbart News is “very proud of the fact that we’re the most pro-Jewish site of any news site, and I include The Forward in that.”

He cited Breitbart News’ leadership against the BDS movement to boycott companies that do business with Israel, its leading role in protecting “young Jewish kids on college campuses” from anti-Semitism, and Breitbart London’s work in chronicling “the plight of the Jews in Europe.”

“We set up Breitbart Jerusalem under Aaron Klein, I would say The Great Aaron Klein, to be a voice of really breaking stories over there,” he added. “We couldn’t be prouder, and last night I was so proud to talk to this Zionist Organization of America.”
